Woodside Juvenile Rehabilitation Center

From Detention to Rehabilitation

Located in Colchester, Vermont, Woodside is the only lockdown facility for adolescents in the state. It provides short- and long-term placements and treatment services for youth in a safe and secure environment.

Woodside staff attend Kripalu immersion programs and Aron Steward, assistant director at Woodside and a Kripalu Yoga teacher, says they return “not only with tools for taking better care of themselves, but also with a whole new perspective on how to work with the kids. They’re using yoga, breathing techniques, meditation, and mindfulness to intervene when there’s a crisis.” Residents practice these tools in weekly yoga classes at Woodside, with staff participating alongside the kids.
